Boiled Eggs

Boiling an egg doesn't seem that complex, does it? But to get the perfect yolk try our time tested method.

Prep Time
Boiled Eggs


eggs, room temperature


  1. Put room-temperature eggs into a saucepan of cold water and place over a medium heat. When the water comes to a simmer, turn off the heat and put the lid on the saucepan. 
  2. Leave in the pan until cooked the way you like them.
  3. As soon as hard-boiled eggs are cooked, put them under cold running water for a few minutes. This prevents a grey ring forming on the outside of the yolk.


  • Soft-boiled 3-4 minutes
  • Firm white, soft yolk 4-7 minutes
  • Hard-boiled 8 minutes
